I am in the process of deciding on a calibre for my first custom rifle
, It will be used mainly for longer distance (in the uk anyway) hunting of deer, and maybe some african plains game. Looking for a faast flat hard hitting round for deer upto 250lbs maximum something a bit different too, I have a 6.5x55 and a 308 already, I'm thinking along the lines of the 270wsm, 0r 7mm wsm
, I like the sound of the allen mags, but am worried about barrel life and the possibility of getting cases/bullet in the uk. Also any recpommendations for action would be helpful, I am nearly decided on a NEsika, but am still open to advice.
So if any of you have any experience of the calibre or any other sugestions then please help.
